For the longest time now, we have been fascinated with serial killers. From “the original” that was Jack the Ripper to Ted Bundy to Jeffrey Dahmer, we have heard about them, feared them, and yet we always want to know about them. There is probably no greater manifestation of this fascination than in Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Buffalo Bill in Thomas Harris' novel and the fantastic Jonathan Demme-helmed film adaptation of The Silence of the Lambs.
MANILA – Courage is something that we sometimes find hard to find within ourselves. As children, when we are faced with new or scary situations, we often look to our parents or guardians to show us their own forms of courage, so that we in turn may copy them. That message is at the core of Publicis JimenezBasic's new campaign for Globe Telecom.
MANILA – As fun and heartwarming as the holidays are usually viewed, there's still a segment of society that doesn't necessarily look forward to the onset of Christmas. Namely the single people. After all, who doesn’t want a special someone to share the yuletide moments with? In a season that tends to pressure most people to be in a relationship, McDonald’s newest holiday anthem is a breath of fresh, independent air.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
